    PRK overcorrection

    Just wonder if anybody has similar overcorrection after PRK. I would like to know what could be done and how is the final result?

    I had PRK 15 days ago. Vision was about 2.0 nearsighted on Day 5 but quickly turned into almost 20/20 on Day 7 and 8. But starting from Day 9, my vision became farsighted and has become more farsighted everyday. Today Day 16, I have 2.0 -2.5 farsighted.

    My doc tried to clam me by saying this is normal fructruation. But I don't feel this way as it is just going worse in one way, not up and down. My feeling is my surgery or laser center may have done wrong calculation. Is this possible?

    But regardless the cause of it, I really need to know what could be done to stop it from getting further farsighted and regress back to zero. Is it possible? My dream has turned into a nightmare.

    Hi ienghb,

    I know you posted this about a year ago, but I am going through something similar right now, and am wondering if your vision ever improved?
    I am currently 10 weeks post-PRK surgery on one eye and am +2.5 overcorrected.
